Paddock Groomer

Non-motorised Horse Manure / Alpaca Poo Collector and Pasture Debris Collector. Invented and manufacturerd right here in New Zealand. A must have for busy horse owners and equestrian facilities!

The "Paddock Groomer" is an effective chain-driven brush sweeper manure collector machine made from tough UV treated moulded plastic that is weather resistant and wont rust, rot, fade - important for use with acidic collection material.

No more overwhelming chore cleaning paddocks everyday with wheelbarrow and shovel (or now no excuse not to pick it up at all!)... simply sit down on your Quad Bike / ATV once or twice a week and tow the Paddock Groomer around your paddock for simple, effective manure collection which is otherwise unsightly, very unhealthy and inhibits pasture growth.

2 models available - the "Original Groomer" and the new larger "Super Groomer", both complete with user manual and NZ manufacturers warranty.

Talk to Diana about your horse property and management style to help decide which model suits you best.
The Paddock Groomers are also popular on alpaca studs and for lawn maintenance.

Demos currently available in Rangiora, Christchurch area.
Please call me on 021 447725 to organise a viewing or see the Paddock Groomer website for further info on these effective machines.

Future Post

The exciting NZ Made repurposed "Future Post" fenceposts that everyone is talking about - made from recycled household and commercial waste plastic - are now available in the South Island and stores throughout New Zealand. I have some samples of the 1.8m and 2.4m posts for you to look at and discuss how they may suit your needs.

Future Posts offer many benefits for both conventional and specialised farming sectors including:

Equine & Lifestyle Block properties: Instantly appealing solid black fenceposts that never need painting and cannot be chewed by stock!

Vineyards & Horticulture: Replace your wooden CCA treated posts with recyclable and sustainable Future Posts - no leaching of CAAs into soil, impenetrable by water / frosts / insects / fungi, as strong as timber with less breakage due to increased flexibility, Organic farm friendly with BioGro certification.

Farming / Rural / Environmental Projects - Future Posts can be post-driven, cut, drilled, nailed, screwed, bolted and stapled, no rotting / splitting / cracking (ideal for coastal areas, swamps and wet lands), solid posts with consistent size and grade, UV Stable with very long-life expectancy.

With their many Performance and Environmental benefits, Future Post is an exciting NZ initiative that has already made an immediate impact on New Zealand's soft plastics recycling scheme and deserves our support.
Designed by a fencer, built for a farmer!

Check out the website for more information and give me a ring anytime on 021 447725 if you are keen to have a look at these fence posts in person or find out more.

Let's chat about the benefits of using Future Posts for your next fencing project or commercial vineyard / horticulture setup and support New Zealand's environmental, recycling and sustainability schemes at the same time.

As a born and bred rural New Zealander, I continue to enjoy a lifetime involvement with general farming and living on the land, stock management and the plentiful outdoor pursuits that we all have on our back doorsteps. I have spent most of my life self-employed as a full-time horse breeder, trainer and coach ("Astek Stud", Canterbury and "Chester Farm", Waikato), this professional equestrian involvement has given me opportunity to meet many fantastic people and understand first-hand what it takes to help achieve a positive and successful rural life.

With a country lifestyle or land ownership comes learning how to manage each individual property to best effect, maintaining healthy animals and plants, navigating the machinery and tools for the job as well as having time and energy to foster personal endeavours in both community and home life... and then of course there is dealing with the weather!

The products I represent and recommend here are all proudly NZ Made and have come about through "lightbulb moments" of inspiration during everyday Kiwis at home on their own farms thinking "...there has got to be a better way...".

I personally value each of these product manufacturers for their professionalism, integrity and friendship. It has been exciting to be involved with them working on different developments and ideas over the years to enable us all to present the best product we can for you - our client and fellow land lover.

I hope you enjoy living and working in New Zealand as much as I do. I look forward to hearing your story and sharing with you these quality NZ Farm and Lifestyle solutions to help better service your own farm or lifestyle block, horticulture property or country based commercial venture.

Thankyou.
Cheers
Diana Jamieson
